Migration Within and From Africa: Shared policy challenges for Africa and for Europe

October 30, 2016

The global migration and refugee crisis of 2015/2016 has made it increasingly clear that the challenges associated with growing cross-border mobility cannot adequately be dealt with at national levels alone. There is a great need for a better understanding of the regional and global context for migration and related policy strategies. With this research overview, Delmi aims to examine migration policy developments in Africa, a continent which has historic ties with and increasing importance for Europe.

What are the main migration patterns within Africa? What are the main drivers of migration? What political initiatives to manage international migration within and from Africa have been developed and what forms of cooperation have been tested among African countries? Which conclusions can we draw from developments in this part of the world, and how could the EU and Sweden assist Africa to find sustainable approaches to cross-border mobility?

These are some of the questions that this study reflects upon. It is written by Prof. Aderanti Adepoju, one of Africa’s leading migration scholars. Prof. Adepoju is the co-ordinator of the Network of Migration Research on Africa and Chief Executive of the Human Resources Development Centre in Lagos, Nigeria.
